    The time has come. This week I have finally gotten fed up with copy/pasting the empty Xbox/Cube entries into the list, and with the Cube officially going to sleep with the fishies yesterday I decided that now is the time to take action. The Cube might get a reprieve if they ever actually release Harvest Moon, but I don't think the Xbox is ever coming back.

    Anyway, quite a slow week volume-wise but one good release for most of the platforms. Can't say fairer than that, can you?


    XBOX 360
    Blitz - The League
    Call of Duty 2 GOTY Edition (Classic)
    Crackdown

    WII
    Kororinpa

    PLAYSTATION 2
    Final Fantasy XII
    Ghost Rider

    PC GAMES
    Another World - 15th Anniversary Edition
    Infernal
    The Mark

    DS
    Fossil League
    My Frogger Toy Trials
    Tennis Masters

    PSP
    Ghost Rider
    The Warriors

    GAME BOY ADVANCE
    Ghost Rider

    When the most exciting games is fifteen years old it really isn't a great week.

    Oh, yeah, Crackdown is supposed to be fairly good. I forgot that.

    Anyone seen any reviews for the Warriors and Ghost Rider on the PSP. I currently don't have any PSP games (sold the lot of them) and one of these might see me through until Metal Gear :pO (Pal) comes out

    I've been replaying Another World on my GBA. It's a lot harder than I remembered it. :-)

    I thought Crackdown came out weeks ago? Or did some people get copies early?

    I like the new look. One comment - maybe just put "360" instead of XBOX 360, now that XBOX has gone? Other than that, the next gen of What's New is truely here.

    Not quite - there's no PS3 section yet. :-)

    I used to be able to run straight through it without dying. I can't now. :-)

    It's coming back to me, though. I'd forgotten quite a lot of it, which caused most of the problems.

    Some (me among them) got copies early, mine was from Austria as it isn't published here.

    edit: And buy Kororinpa. Although I have no idea how to pronounce the name in English, and only a hunch for the Japanese... ;)

    Surely the only way to pronounce Kororinpa is "kooloo-limpah!" (while pirouetting).

    Bugger - I can't believe COD2 comes out in the classics range the day I was going to trade it in towards Crackdown.
    Means I'll get even less for it. Might aswell keep it as it's still a brilliant game.

    Anyone know if Ghostrider or The Warriors on PSP are supposed to be any good?

    No, that's how long the FFXII EU conversion took.

    Ooh, I need to know if Blitz is any good. Thought the demo was okay, but I still need a little convincing.

    Ill let you know. I really liked the demo and it a nice difference from the experience of Madden, much more pick up and play. Also like the prospect of a story mode.

    Ended up getting Crackdown and the FFXII hardback guide, in direct exchange for a few games I had to trade in, which was nice.

    I ended up having Co-Op 360 doom and missing the opening times for uni post room so no GITS:SAC:2nd for me, and was too lazy to go to town to trade in for FFXII.
